** How she recruits and retains employees is shown in the novella "Deus Ex: Fallen Angel". She has the higher level engineers kidnapped and brought to TYM and forced to work for her under threat of death. This brings in workers for TYM and destroys its competitors.

** [[spoiler: justified in the sequel, where the end of Human Revolution caused a massive backlash against technological advancement. To the point that people are already regressing to the point that floppy disks (tho upgraded to hold far more data) are starting to come back in style.]]

* ContinuitySnarl: The Human Revolution comics can be summed up as this. Involving an entire adventure that takes place in the middle of the game's events, contradicts canon events, involves characters never seen or even referenced/mentioned in the game despite having a huge impact on the main characters, has characters who are terrorists dressed up in the trailer's version of the Belltower uniforms (but they aren't ever referenced as being Belltower). [[CriticalResearchFailure Its like the writers barely read the cliff-notes of the game and maybe watched 1 trailer for it before writing the comics.]]

** If you act like a KleptomaniacHero around the Sarif building, breaking into offices and stealing everyone's stuff, you'll find an email on one employee's computer mentioning this. Suggesting they report it to the security chief(you).
** Taking the increased jump height augmentation without the Icarus Landing system can result in Adam getting hurt or even dying since he doesn't have the RequiredSecondaryPowers to land properly.
** Even if they don't kill the target, Adam's non-lethal takedowns are far from harmless. As the base commander from The Missing Link dlc mentions, a lot of the men Adam knocked unconscious are in comas.
** A guy off the street walks up to Adam and tries to black mail him, threatening to tip off the security forces looking for him. Adam can get rid of him by pointing out how easy it'd be to break his bones, or just exit the conversation and knock him out or kill him on the spot.

** Michael Zelazny is a ReligiousBruiser SuperSoldier whose names mean "Who is like God" and "Made of iron", respectively. Even if the surname is a reference to RogerZelazny it is likely that the choice of character to give it to was deliberate.

* BallisticDiscount: Some NPC characters in the game will demand you pay them off or do something for an item or money, e.g. Brian Tindall or Anonymous X. You can, instead, just shoot them (or punch them out) and take what you want off their bodies. The trope is notably averted, however, with [[spoiler: Chuanli]], who (honestly) tells you he doesn't have the information regarding a captive prostitute's location on him. While it's possible to pay him, get the information, then punch him out and get the money back, story-wise if you punch him out without going through all of that nonsense you're done screwed.

* PhilosophicalChoiceEndings: The finale asks you (through Adam) "Should human augmentation research continue, despite the dangers it presents to humanity?"

* PhilosophicalChoiceEndings: The finale asks you (through Adam) "Should human augmentation research continue, despite the dangers it presents to humanity?"humanity?" The game is all about the information war surrounding the nascent human cybernetic augmentation technology. The ending has the villains sabotage cybernetics on a global scale, and Adam (who has been turned into a cyborg involuntarily and thus has a personal stake in this) has to decide how to present this event to the world: blame it on the cybernetics themselves (fueling the anti-augmentation attitudes), on a random fault in the technology (giving more power over technology to the PowersThatBe through subsequent regulations), or on the anti-aug extremists (allowing augmentation research to continue unfettered). Finally, Adam can choose to let humanity make up their own minds about the disaster, by killing everyone who knows the truth about it (including himself). Unfortunately, since the game is a prequel, no matter what Adam chooses, the events will play out in such a way as to create the [[VideoGame/DeusEx original game]]'s setting.

* StealthRun: Another possible way to play through the game, just like PacifistRun. The two will probably go hand-in-hand; avoiding people like the plague makes it easier to avoid killing them. One incentive for a stealth run is the "Ghost" bonus for moving through an area without any enemies becoming aware of you at all; it's hefty and more than makes up for the points you might have gotten by defeating the enemies in the area.

* StealthyMook: Belltower Sneakers have the invisibility aug. Luckily, they're also {{Fragile Speedster}}s, and can be taken down with ease.
